Entirely unshackling themselves from convenient genre-description, Neurosis tapped into unparalleled levels of artistic endeavour on Through Silver In Blood and subsequently found themselves contorting industrial metal, sludge metal, avant-garde metal and hardcore punk into ever more twisted shapes.

Bleak and cynical, Neurosis’ monolithically heavy riffing and layers of ear-annihilating distortion may drone and hum like the most unpalatable white noise but it’s their hypnotically tribal atmosphere that reaps the most rewards.

Very few bands can rival the densely unforgiving and yet subtly haunting dynamics Neurosis channeled nearly 20 years ago and Through Silver In Blood is still mandatory listening.

Music this powerful and so perfectly executed comes around once a generation (if you’re lucky) and Neurosis’, and therefore Relapse Records, defining moment is Through Silver In Blood; one of the greatest post-metal albums ever released. 

About Chris Jennings (1978 Articles)
I love metal. Always have. Always will. As editor of Worship Metal - a site dedicated to being as positive about metal and its myriad of sub-genres as possible - my aim is to 'worship' metal through honest reviews, current news and a wide variety of features; offering the same exposure to underground bands as we do to mainstream/well known acts. Our mantra; the bands are partners and we exist to serve the bands \m/

  1. Through Silver In Blood is a truly terrifying listen that leaves you feeling drained after playing it. Heavy in every sense of the word.

    Saw them in Belfast when the album came out as support for Entombed. The crowd was just transfixed on the stage for the duration of their set, poor Entombed didn’t stand a chance coming on after them.

    Incantantion – Onward to Golgotha?

  4. Great list, but I’d add Incantation, Burnt by the Sun, Coalesce, and Necrophagist.
